  • Mike Says: The Trojans dominated their district last year winning all of their district games by an average of 53 points. This year will probably not be any different. They return 15 starters that includes 8 1st Team All-District or All-Staters. Expect them to go 8-2 or 9-1 in the regular season. They would be undefeated but they have Navasota and La Marque in their pre-district schedule. They will probably go division II as long as Liberty or Splendora makes it in the playoffs. That would match them up with La Marque in the Area round of the playoffs.
  • Chris Says: I can’t wait to see the outcome of their games against Navasota and La Marque.  Those games will tell us a lot about all of the squads.  These fireworks before district play is started is likely to be the only real close battles before playoffs.  Once in the postseason, Coldspring-Oakhurst will have to prove that they are worthy of another 10 win season.  The competition in 3A makes it unlikely they will return to the title game, but two years ago people were saying the same thing.
